Born in the United States in 1960, Andrew Stiller grew up in a large family of talented artists, musicians, and skilled dressmakers. From a young age, Stiller’s creativity and independence were nurtured and encouraged by those that surrounded him. After completing his BA in English, he traveled through Eastern Europe during the Cold War era, pursuing his love for travel and experiencing other cultures. Years later, he continued his studies at Bezalel Academy in Israel. Stiller’s creative endeavors led him to his career as a writer while becoming an independent knitwear designer in his spare time. Stiller has spent the last 20 years working as an advertising copywriter in New York and Philadelphia, where he currently resides. His debut novel is a tribute of gratitude to his family for their unconditional love, support, and for always believing in him.
